Children's Financial Education Session for Parents on 11/14
by posted 10/06/2017


VLL Sponsor and Board Member Jason Adams of UBS is offering a children's financial education session to VLL parents and grandparents. 

Through education and encouragement, parents and grandparents can help provide children with the skills necessary to make a lifetime of good financial decisions. One of the most important life skills we can teach our children is how to handle money—how to save it, spend it, budget it, invest it and borrow it.

Join me for “Discovering values,” an informative seminar and roundtable discussion focusing on the role parents and grandparents can play in developing their children’s financial foundation.
